Frankfurt Motor Show: Environment on Parade

The International Motor Show or Internationale Automobil-Ausstellung (IAA) is the world's largest motor show and it opens today. IAA is held biennially in Frankfurt, Germany and is known in English as the Frankfurt Motor Show. It will attract at least 1 million visitors and will debut no fewer than 250 new passenger vehicle models.

I am no car junkie, so don't follow this closely but I did watch a segment on the morning news today previewing the models that visitors will be treated to when they arrive at the show this year. Clean, green, hybrid, electic, and other environmentally friendly prototypes will dominate the show apparently. I saw images of tiny space-age looking electric cars, and fancy luxury brands like Audi with the word HYBRID painted over the distinctive sleek bodywork.

Growing up not far from Detroit MI where the annual Auto Show dominates people's calendars, I remember it was all about being big and bad in those days! Large Hummer-type vehicles, trucks with industrial grade power being sold on the consumer market, and big heavy fuselages (I know that is an airplane term, but some of the cars were so large they looked larger than a small plane!).

Nice to see that the most anticipated new models this year are the enviro-friendly ones. They will have their place in the spotlight over the course of the next two weeks in Frankfurt - but the real road test will come when they hit the market. How will consumers vote?
